    The food was excellent, but the service was half-and-half and very noisy. I was expecting it to be more of an upscale Italian restaurant, but I would go again because the food was excellent.

    Went here on a Saturday night. It was easy to get a reservation. Service was attentive. Food was ok. Bread was cold. I am used to warm bread for starters. The bruschetta was quite tasty but again the peppers were cold. Should have at least been room temperature. The Margherita pizza was basic. The cheese wasn’t amazing. I have had some really good Margherita pizzas. The pesto pasta was quite good but the portion was really really small for the price.

    We enjoyed sitting upstairs and enjoying dessert and pistachio martinis as well as other drinks! The music was great, staff friendly and accommodating! Michal the manager is very nice and friendly. Love the atmosphere and was a perfect place to end our night in the North End. Thank you so much and hope to return soon!

    The food was amazing, but the restaurant was very slow. Despite it being slow. were waited long times before our server would return to the table. Our drinks were empty and no one checked in until the food was gone to see if we needed anything.

    Overall we were quite disappointed with our experience eating her. Firstly we are "foodies" and eat out regularly and use the Boston Restaurant week to try new places. The poor experience started when we sat down and our server gave menus, but noticeably, no menu for Restaurant week. It seemed to us that they were purposefully not providing that with the hope that dinners would order off the standard menu instead. Not a good sign of a well run restaurant. We finally ordered and appetizer came relatively quickly. But the issues started with the main course. We ended up waiting 1 1/2 hours for our main. This was clearly not acceptable and makes no sense. Any modern restaurant has an automated order system where the server places the order electronically and the kitchen should manage the orders in sequence. Unfortunately it was not isolated to us. The couple right next to us had issues getting their food and ended up getting half their meal to go so they didn't miss their ferry. The couple near us also waited as long as did we. But the couple behind us really had issues. The server got their wine wrong and even worse, their main course arrived before the appetizers and when we left, they were still waiting on their appetizers. Each table raised these issues to the restaurant manager, but other than apologizing repeatedly to each table, he did little to actually resolve the problems with the kitchen and the pace of the service. To add insult to injury, as we were trying to pay, the billing system in the restaurant apparently had issues and we could not get a proper bill printed. We were so frustrated by this time that we simply approved a hand written bill and cut our losses. The food was actually quite good, but we and every table around us had a very frustrating experience. I think there must be an issue with Depasquale Restaurant Group and how they are managing their 5-6 restaurants. I would not go back to Assaggio.

    Caesar salad, filet, chocolate dessert delish. Filet cooked as directed. Bartender worked with me on white wine request. Chardonnay drinker, settled on Sauvignon Blanc, after taste test...crisp, cold, not fruity, very good! Female bartender was outstanding! Pleasant, friendly, talkative, sweet, didn't rush us. Even was able to scrounge up a decaf cappuccino!! We'll be back...soon!!

    First time visit. Our family loved the vibe and the service team. Our waiter was terrific. We never felt rushed, even on a Friday night. The food was really good. One family member gave a “so-so” to the gnocchi’s. Chicken Parm was awesome. We would definitely go back.

    Food is not worth the price—especially with so many great restaurants in the area. We were trying something new—instead of our usual favorite places—and this place just didn’t compare. Ravioli tasted like it was frozen and not fully warmed through. Wait service was lacking — young waiters seemed indifferent or uninterested in being there, although the bus boy worked hard, and he was the person we tipped well. The bread and basil oil dip were good, but otherwise, just not worth it!

    I'm disappointed with my recent visit to Assaggio's. I've been here quite a few times with family and friends and never had a bad experience, but this time was different. They sat us in the basement near where the employees go in & out and the downstairs bathrooms were disgusting. You walked out to a room filled with trash too. We ordered the Zucchini Flowers which I've had numerous times (there's usually 3) and it's 20 dollars which is still expensive but whatever...they gave us 2 little stuffed zucchini flowers for 20 dollars, one less than normal and a huge rip off. My dad also asked for light cheese on his veal parm and extra sauce and they didn't listen to that- it was covered in cheese and barely any sauce. Also took over an hour and 15 mins to get our food. Not a good experience.
